Fidesz-KDNP victory expected at EP elections

According to the latest polls, the governing parties will receive more than half of the votes on Sunday.

According to a party preference assessment by Závecz Research and Századvég, five days before the European Parliamentary elections, the Fidesz-KDNP governing alliance has secured a strong following among decided voters.

Compared to the beginning of May, figures by Závecz Research reveal that Fidesz-KDNP has widened its lead over rivals, securing 57.5 percent of the votes among decided voters.

The fresh poll yielded the following results: Hungarian Socialist Party – Dialogue for Hungary alliance (MSZP-P – 10 percent), Democratic Coalition (DK – 10 percent), Jobbik (9.3 percent) and Politics Can Be Different Party (LMP – 5 percent) and all received the electoral threshold. The three opposition parties – Momentum, Our Homeland Movement and Hungarian Two-Tailed Dog Party (KKP) – don’t have enough support to send representatives to the European Parliament.

Századvég Institute’s data shows similar proportions with minor differences. Among decided voters, Fidesz-KDNP is supported by 54 percent, Jobbik by 14, MSZP-P by 10 and DK by 9 percent above the electoral threshold. Finally, 34 percent of those asked were uncertain of their party preference.
